action don't do it anymore. the democrats, john kerry in the early '90s and some others said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down the road. but that's all gone. i have spoken to a republican politician, why is that? the answer was we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it's not worth the cost or the hassle. part of it was there is an incredibly bitter campaign in california over proposition 209 which banned racial preferences in 1996. really better. say there's fair to was a lot of demonizing going on against the supporters of proposition 209 against the people opposing affirmative action. it was bloody and i think politicians look at that and say i don't want to get into that. joe lieberman backed off his questions about affirmative- action after that campaign. he said that was one reason he was backing off. even jesse jackson is attacking me, i better rethink it. >> other questions? this gentleman here in the front? wait until the microphone gets to you. >> i apologize if this is very

, take one of your opponents most important strengths and turn it into a weakness. john kerry's war record and turn it into a weakness. mitt romney's business experience, turn it into a weakness. try to peel out some undecided and independent voters. after a certain point, do not blow your whole campaign war chest going after people who may never end up going your way. instead, go back and try to find out how to inflate the turnout among your base using technology and micro targeting. i think the obama campaign has done extremely well with that. 2004, if you are going to look at a model, that is one to look at in terms of the strategy employed in this campaign, at least on the obama side. >> i doubt that karl is going every day to check his mail box for that check.
